Foodie: one who appreciates fine cuisine, or one who just eats too damn much.
Hey! First blog of the New Year! Look at that!
So I have been stressed to the max lately, I mean I haven't had time to watch House in like 2 weeks!! And I was almost done with the 6th season! THIIIS CLOSE!
Anyway, I decided to get blogging again. This post is going to be about food. To me, food is a HUGE thing: its good, its fun, its stressful, and its important. Why stressful out of all those things? Because if you're worried about weight and losing it, it can be a big deal. So I make a great effort to make sure I cut down (or out) sugar when I can, watch carbs (no or little white bread), and watch my portions heavily. Because people have been asking me about weight, fitness, and food, I wanted to focus on that for a post. I also bought this new book and I plan to be able to fully use it starting next week. I'd planned on this week but have just been tooooo busy. Too busy to even run or lift weights, and I HATE that I can't. It literally makes me angry if I can't work out. Yes, that is where I am in my journey to fitness now. Its that serious.
Here are some tips out food(s)!:
|The portions could be smaller here.|
Fruits have natural sugars in them and things such as cereal have sugar added to them. Special is not as bad as other cereals but you still have to make sure to read the lables! (Also, milk has sugar added to that as well. Did you know that about a cup of 1% low fat milk can have about 12g of sugar in it? I mean, its milk people!) Skim is best, in my opinion.
This was a great snack, three sushi rolls, raw carrots, small peanut butter cups, and a cup of tea! (With some vitamin supplements on the side--thing I take when I am eating.) It was a yummy light snack!

I hope this helps you, those who are interested. I have been eating lots of veggies lately and loving them. If you don't find yourself BIG on them now, you will. There's so much you can do with them. If there are questions, suggestions, or anything. You know how to find me. I want to help others meet their goals. Its hard to do it alone and I want to give all the support I can.
In future posts, I want to incorporate the types of work outs I do and maybe give out some ideas for each individual person depending on what their goals are. Also, depending if people actually read this and come to me. :/
I am an RA now, motivating people and helping others is officially what I do now. Please, help me help you. I want to be the best leader I can be, so I can lead you to be the best you that you want to be.
